How much should one use string?


#1

I am a kind of cheap stake with string. I don´t stop using a string until its untill its unusable. But what are signs that the string is going to break?


#2

i change strings when its dirty, frayed, or not holding tension anymore, or the latter. really depends on how hard u play ur strings


#3

agreed


#4

I do 10 really high eli hops right after washing my hands. If I get a stringburn, I replace the sring.


#5

Nice idea i like it

I replace it when it starts to look like a milipede.


#7

I change either when the string breaks with no warning, I get a funky new colour I want to use or if the string starts to look like a badly maintained dreadlock…

I change string pretty much whenever I leave the house. lol After a time when a string randomly broke in the middle of Walmart, I’d rather not take any chances… I also change string whenever I’m about to do some recording, just so there’s as much string visibility as possible.

Yeah, something tells me if the string breaks, you should replace it :wink:


#10

I walked right into that one! :smiley:


#11

i change it when it doesnt hold a loop for suicides anymore or when it doesn’t bind as easily or binds too much. it changes quite often for me for some reason :confused:
